Bangladesh: Fashion Revolution

Yesterday was April 24th, the one year anniversary of the Savar building's collapse in Bangladesh. This building was showing clear signs that it was extremely unsafe to work in, and the employers told the workers to continue working as they were, ignoring the signs. This resulted in more than 1,000 deaths. Fashionrevolution.org created a day we can acknowledge that factory workers around the world are not getting the proper care and attention they need and deserve. It gave us a day we can spread awareness about the unfair conditions of the fashion industry, world-wide. 

Here is a New York Times article that you can read for more information.

The dedication of this organization is amazing, and the response was overwhelming. To anyone who participated: you are awesome.
